    Hi guys, I made this post to create a big list of aphorisms and proverbs from all over the world.
    I start with this:

    Life is not about waiting for the Storm to Pass,
    it's about learning to Dance in the Rain.

    Ignorance does not necesarilly mean one has a lack of wisdom, for a most ignorant person can be one with much wisdom. It's "live and learn" that creates wisdom.

    Some swedish sayings translated into english (as well I could):

    Better to hear your string break than to never pull your bow at all.

    One bird in your hand is better than ten in the forest.

    Many little streams forms a river.

    There's no cow on the ice as long as you have the butt on solid ground.

    And my favorite: Lagom är bäst meaning: not too much and not too little / the right amount is best

    La libertà è come l'aria: ti accorgi quanto è importante solo quando manca.

    Freedom is like air: you realize how important it is only when you don't have it.

    No wait. I totally forgot my second favorite saying: there's no bad weather, just bad clothes.
    It's better in Swedish though as it happens to rhyme.

    Living life in the fast lane
    Moving at the speed of life and I cant slow down
    Only got a gallon in the gas tank
    But im almost at the finishline so I cant stop now.

    I dont really know where im headed
    Just enjoying the ride
